Social media is considered as a platform whereusers express themselves. The rise of social me-dia as one of humanity’s most important publiccommunication platforms presents a potentialprospect for early identification and manage-ment of mental illness. Depression is one suchillness that can lead to a variety of emotionaland physical problems. It is necessary to mea-sure the level of depression from the socialmedia text to treat them and to avoid the nega-tive consequences. Detecting levels of depres-sion is a challenging task since it involves themindset of the people which can change period-ically. The aim of the DepSign-LT-EDI@ACL-2022 shared task is to classify the social me-dia text into three levels of depression namely“Not Depressed”, “Moderately Depressed”, and“Severely Depressed”. This overview presentsa description on the task, the data set, method-ologies used and an analysis on the results ofthe submissions. The models that were submit-ted as a part of the shared task had used a va-riety of technologies from traditional machinelearning algorithms to deep learning models.It could be observed from the result that thetransformer based models have outperformedthe other models. Among the 31 teams whohad submitted their results for the shared task,the best macro F1-score of 0.583 was obtainedusing transformer based model.

Common sense validation deals with testing whether a system can differentiate natural language statements that make sense from those that do not make sense. This paper describes the our approach to solve this challenge. For common sense validation with multi choice, we propose a stacking based approach to classify sentences that are more favourable in terms of common sense to the particular statement. We have used majority voting classifier methodology amongst three models such as Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT), Micro Text Classification (Micro TC) and XLNet. For sentence generation, we used Neural Machine Translation (NMT) model to generate explanatory sentences.

Assessing the funniness of edited news headlines task deals with estimating the humorness in the headlines edited with micro-edits. This task has two sub-tasks in which one has to calculate the mean predicted score of humor level and other deals with predicting the best funnier sentence among given two sentences. We have calculated the humorness level using microtc and predicted the funnier sentence using microtc, universal sentence encoder classifier, many other traditional classifiers that use the vectors formed with universal sentence encoder embeddings, sentence embeddings and majority algorithm within these approaches. Among these approaches, microtc with 6 folds, 24 processes and 3 folds, 36 processes achieve the least Root Mean Square Error for development and test set respectively for subtask 1. For subtask 2, Universal sentence encoder classifier achieves the highest accuracy for development set and Multi-Layer Perceptron applied on vectors vectorized using universal sentence encoder embeddings for the test set.
